Born in 1981, Madrid, Rafa Macarron is a self-taught contemporary artist from Spain. His eccentric and colorful style has captivated many European and American art collectors. Drawing from his childhood memories as inspiration, Macarron created nostalgic scenery from ordinary life. With an unrestrained and childlike creativity, he created many whimsical illustrations of outer space. In his paintings, Macarron depicted his characters with proportions of extra-terrestrial humanoids. With huge eyes and long eyelashes, they hold exaggerated poses with their soft rubbery limbs, conveying many humorous stories within the paintings. In his works, people are similar yet very different - similar to real life, everyone harbors a distinctive mind, appearance, and background.
